Blender v2.79.6 - Edge slide Clamp (C) not working
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

System Information
Operating system: windows 7 (at work - not my choice!)
Graphics card: GTX1080

Blender Version 2.79.6 fb057153b05

Edge slide clamp key not working.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Create an object, enter edit mode, select a vertex/edge/face. Double tap G to edge slide, press C to slide 'beyond' the edge - nothing happens - the Clamp on/off text to the bottom left doesn't change - the yellow guide lines that should appear on the object do not appear.

**please note - I'd like to be using 2.80 now but I'm a Highways Civil Engineer doing visualisations and I really need the Offset add-on - I really hope it will be incorporated soon - it's my most used command by far!

This works as intended in 2.8 (just pressing c works)

However, in 2.79 you have to do shift + c to get it to activate. But you do not need to have shift for the E shortcut...

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) are 2.79 bugs still considered?

Many thanks for the information. Very helpful. I'm keen to jump to 2.8 but just need the offset edges add-on before I do!

This kind of more minor bug we won't fix in 2.7 anymore.
